Lily Allen to take husband's name

Lilly Allen will be known as "Cooper" after Saturday

The singer will take fiancé's surname after they get married this Saturday.

Speaking at the Harvey Nichols launch of her Lucy In Disguise label, Lilly said 'I can't wait to be Lily Rose Cooper. It sounds like I should be a country singer'.

However the musician-turned-shop owner admitted that her father, actor Keith Allen, was none to pleased about the loss of the family name and burst into tears when he heard the news.

Lily and partner Sam Cooper are getting married this Saturday, June 11, in Gloustershire.
